Perry the Platypus Hat and Martha Stewart Loom

I know I said I wouldn't start the Perry the Platypus hat but....I did anyway.  Finished the hat portion.  Still need to work on the face.

In case you're wondering, I didn't really use a pattern.  I started with the purple KK loom and made icords.  Then I increased to make the earflaps.  Then I started a set on the other side and started working in the round and did a hat and gather finished it.

I was thinking about getting the Martha Stewart Loom.  I didn't want to order of HSN.  Then I found out it was also sold at Michaels.  Then I found out Michaels had a 40% coupon this week.  So now I own the loom and my husband has cut me off from spending anymore for awhile :)

This is a picture of the box

This is the pieces. 

These are the pegs
I'll be having some fun with it later.

I took Thursday off because my husband has an important appointment and we only have one car so I have a three day weekend.  Hoping to finish Zoé's Kermit the Frog jacket and Perry's face.


  1. You are making such fast progress on your Perry the Platypus hat! My sons LOVE Phineas and Ferb so I can't wait to see how it turns out.

  2. I got my Martha Stewart Loom Kit at JoAnn's so I could use the 40% coupon too. Michael's didn't have one. I really do like mine, except for one thing. The knit tool smells so bad I can't use it. Too bad too because I like the grip. Does your tool handle have a bad odor?

  3. Honestly, I am not using the tool that came with the Martha Stewart Loom. I just used one of my many KK tools. Haven't really smelled it. I guess I will have to give it a whiff one of these days.
